there are no fakes, no "drawing" tricks. only image processing.
If you would like to give it a shot on your own, do so! and post it..
Here are some instructions:
Step 1 - selecting your photo
- You will need a decent photo. Sheer is not the only characteristic the photo must posses, but it is an important one. Black sheer, in my experience, will not work, at least not nearly as good.
- The material itself doesn't matter as you can see from the examples below, as long as it's sheer and a light colored material, you should be fine.
Step 2 - selecting the area to "X-Ray"
- Try to only select the area in wich you are editing, don't do the entire image or it will look terrible. For this you will need to use the "Magnetic Lasso" tool and outline the specified area.
- Once the area has been selected, right click within the outlined area and choose "Layer Via Copy." This will make a new layer from the selected portion.
Step 3 - Obtaining "X-Ray" look
- Next, go to "Image" --> "Adjustments" --> "Levels." From there you can play with the slide bar to achieve the best effect.
- From here you can start to get artistic, play with other levels like, colour, contrast, brightness, and most importantly the "Dodge" and "Burn" tools to perfect it.
That's pretty much it. As i said, some photo's will work better than others. It has a lot to do the the lighting within the photo itself as well.
